Mike Gundy Comments on Brother Cale Gundy’s Resignation from Oklahoma

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Texas

Less than one week after longtime Oklahoma assistant Cale Gundy resigned, his brother, Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy has commented on the situation.

Last Sunday night, Cale Gundy said in a tweet he read aloud “a word that I should never — under any circumstance — have uttered” off the screen of a player’s iPad during a film session the prior week.

He added, “The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so. In that circumstance, a man of character accepts accountability. I take responsibility for this mistake. I apologize.”


The post also notes that Gundy “did not even realize” what he was reading and, as soon as he did, “I was horrified.”

On Saturday, Mike Gundy was asked if his brother could join his staff at Oklahoma State, saying that conversation hasn’t happened yet.

“We haven’t even talked about that,” Mike Gundy told reporters, according to the Tulsa World’s Kelly Hines. “He’s got several other options right now that he’s looking at. I haven’t talked to him about that.”

It will be interesting to see if and where Cale Gundy ends up coaching next, especially since there has been an outpouring of support from former players who seem to believe he got a raw deal in Norman


Cale played quarterback for the Sooners from 1990 to 1993, setting several school records during his time in Norman. He joined the program as a coach in 1999 during Bob Stoops’ first season in Norman and never left. He spent 16 years as the running backs coach, then seven coaching inside receivers, and was OU’s assistant head coach.

During his time in Norman, Oklahoma has won 14 Big 12 titles, along with the 2000 national championship.

Offensive analyst L’Damian Washington will replace Gundy on an interim basis.
